I received the following email from BT a few days ago offering broadband and UK weekend calls for £5 per month. I didn't do anything about it at the time, but called the 0800 328 6737 today and they guy said the offer was still on. The offer is not restricted to people who have received the email and that it was open to anyone who called on that number and quoted that they wanted the deal at £4.99. I initially called it the £5 deal, but he corrected me. It seems a good deal and the guy said that that there is no known closing date for the offer.

There is also a £5 delivery charge for the router.

Clause 1 says by invite only... surely they will know who they have sent this out to?
plus £14.50 line rental per month bringing the total up to almost £20 per month
No mention of download allowance, so i assume it will be their basic package at 10GB per month?

I'm going to vote cold, better deal to be had with TalkTalk at the minute in Carphone Warehouse

Two things to note:
1. BT Total Broadband Option 1 = 10GB monthly usage (useless!).
2. Calls to 0845 and 0870 excluding indirect access numbers (useless!).

Usual BT crap! - thanks I'm staying with TalkTalk.
Not voting either way as this might be a good deal for BT fans.

Line rental on this deal is £13.60, so it's effectively £18.60pm which isn't great considering the 10GB cap on Internet access. Deal rises to £28.10 in month 19.

Not terrible, but hardly great either.

I'm with BT and if anyone uploads large files they should probably stear clear. I'm not sure about other networks but i'm in the North East and my download speed on files is around 400kb/s and my upload speed is 30kb/s.

I have passed this onto my farther in-law as all he does is reads emails and a little surfing so 10gb is ample for him Also he is currently paying £10 a month from orange which I personally think is not very good.
So hot from me.:)

Well I pay Tesco £17.97 a month plus my BT line, so would this be better. I have unlimited internet with Tesco. Is the 10GB everything inc browsing or just downloads. I only ever download a few pictures, but browse for about 5 hours a day.

Why is 10GB useless?


Why is 10GB useless?

because i use more than 10gig a day,
but if you only surf the net and dont use youtube or download anything,or play online games,its ok

statement 4 is funny... like the BT wireless router is faster than anyone else's, it the standard ... so a true statment, it will be "unbeatable" but they make it out to be some special deal.... it's like saying "buy your iphone 4 from Comet it's super fast and unbeatable by any other iphone 4 sold by other retailers" and so on.... lol

my BT contract ends in February....can't wait


Why is 10GB useless?

Because I use more :-)

Depends on if they enforce the 10GB limit. I have been with Orange with a 10GB limit for two years and they don't enforce any restriction on me. I was concerned when I first got it so measured my activity and it was on average several gigs a day. But, like I say they have never done anything.

Orange is still the best deal I can find for me (exchange is not unbundled) at £8 pm plus (BT line rental).
